Massive update to the site today including a conversion of the site to PHP and new stylesheets. This should make the site more readable for most people but web browsers with broken CSS Level 1 support (i.e. Netscape 4.x) will no longer render the site properly. Sorry. All modern browsers (Mozilla, IE, Konqueror, etc.) will display the new pages correctly.

I am doing this to make the site easier to maintain and make writing new lessons less tedious. Enjoy!
